Change in Pocket Used to Rationalize Over $75 in App Purchases
Tempe, Ariz — Local seventh grade Biology teacher Mike DiSanto purchased Angry Birds on his iPhone today, bringing his total amount of money spent on apps to $75.
DiSanto’s behavior began when he first purchased an iPhone 3GS two years ago.
“At first I told myself that I wouldn’t waste money on cheap little games, but then they turned out to be cooler than I thought.
While slow at first, DiSanto’s app purchasing intensified as he became used to his new smartphone. As of October 2011, the change in his pocket rationalized up to three app purchases per week.
When asked if he felt the $75, which could have been spent on football tickets, a night on the town with friends, or any other activity, was excessive, DiSanto disagreed.
“I just bought a sandwich at lunch, so I’ve got at least $1.13 in my pocket.”
DiSanto then bought five apps prior to the conclusion of this interview.
